Tell us about Not For Profit Prints. What is the aim of the project and what do you hope to achieve?

I wanted to try and help out with the refugee crisis and thought that using my photography would be a different way of raising money for charity. On my tumblr page there is an about section with contact information, all profit from selling the prints will be donated to charity. The idea that my images have been captured in places around Europe and for the refugees this is their destination provides a link between the two. It’s still in its early days and I’m hoping in the future to run a market stall with a collection of images printed ready to sell. 

Why the sudden change from Jersey to Lisbon? What’s for you there and what are you looking to do?

The change from Jersey to Lisbon is merely a new job position. Its a research project for 8 months and I’m looking forward to a new challenge. I’m hoping to continue my photography possibly doing some projects at night as during the day I’ll be working. I’d also like to do a road trip down the coast of Portugal and find some open desolate landscapes away from the main touristic areas.
